We ate here on the advice of our concierge, and found it to be one of our least favorite restaurants in South Africa. It is definitely trendy, a cute place with small areas for dining- somewhat intimate. So the atmosphere itself was quite nice. The wine selection was good as well. We started with the mussels and caesar salad. Both were good- nothing to write home about, but fine. For mains, I had the Maybe Corpaci- again, good, but nothing particularly special about it. My husband wanted kingklip but they didn't have that, so the waiter suggested the yellowtail fish. My husband specifically said that he liked mild fish, and wanted to be sure the yellowtail wasn't too 'fishy'. The waiter said it was mild and if we liked kingklip, we would like yellowtail. When the meals were brought to our table, the yellowtail was put in front of me, and I caught a whiff of very strong smelling fish. Happy it wasn't mine, I told our server that it was my husband's. He took one bite and said it tasted as strongly as it smelled. (It wasn't bad fish- someone who likes a strong fish taste would have loved it...we were simply upset that we had said we liked mild fish). When my husband motioned the server over and told him he couldn't eat the fish, the waiter seemed a bit put out. He brought the menu over so my husband could choose something else, but at that point I was sharing my pasta dish with him, and he really couldn't find anything else he particularly wanted on the menu (there are some odd selections....marrow!). The manager did come over and she was very gracious about the misunderstanding, apologized profusely, and did take the fish off our bill. The highlight of the evening was dessert - the chocolate nemesis was to die for. Don't miss out on it. The Don Pedros with amarula were also delicious. So, we'd come back for dessert and drinks, but probably not for dinner.
